3069102 - Change Definition of Org Unit from Company to Business Residence and Vice Versa


In the planning area of the org structure, you want to change the definitions of org units as business residence or company.


  • An org unit is a business residence and needs to be changed to a company.
  • An org unit is a company and needs to be changed to a business residence.

This is not possible and when saving or when checking the org unit and dependent org units, errors occur., e.g.:

  • Business residence ABC cannot be moved from its current company (where ABC represents the Business Residence)
  • Position KLM cannot be moved to company XYZ (Where KLM represents the Position and XYZ represents the Company)
